Rabbi Allie Klein was born and raised in Montclair NJ. She joined TSTI in 2015 after her ordination from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR).
During her time as a rabbinic student, she served as the co-coordinator of Synagogue 3000's pilot initiative with Jewish young adults called "Next Dor NYC;" the pastoral counseling intern at Central Synagogue in Manhattan; the student rabbi at Beth Sholom Temple of Fredericksburg, VA; and the rabbinic intern at DOROT in Manhattan, a leading social service organization serving the elderly. Rabbi Klein was honored during her time at HUC-JIR to be a Bonnie and Daniel Tisch Rabbinical Fellow, which enabled her to study innovative religious practices in both Jewish and interfaith settings.
Prior to entering HUC-JIR, Rabbi Klein worked at Temple Beth Shalom of Needham, MA as the full-time youth educator, overseeing the 6-12th grade programming for the congregation.
In 2007 Rabbi Klein received a B.A. in Psychology from Haverford College. Rabbi Klein and her husband Adam Seidman recently returned to NJ and live in South Orange.
